Felix is a skateboarder and bootmaker from London, England

"I think that skateboarding has taught me to be patient, which I apply daily to making boots and shoes.

I mainly use skateboarding to clear my head when I have to much boot on my mind. Also you look at most things slightly differently being a skateboarder, Like for example, where most people see a bench to sit on, a skateboarder sees a ledge to grind. I think this helps with my creative process for making the boots.

I feel very inspired by Max Schaaf. He builds some cool looking bikes. Motorcycles and that culture influence a lot of my work. I hope he will want a pair of my boots one day!

The No Comply Network is a very good idea to help the community. I'm currently establishing my own brand of boots which will have its own website soon.

I am also doing courses on how to make shoes, so that I can teach others how to make there own shoes and help them to understand just how much work goes into making them.

With Felix Jouanneau boots I am attempting to make an extremely hard wearing product that could potentially last you a life time if looked after properly and trying to stay way from the throw away fashion that sadly is very prevalent today."
